They are totally reconstructing the Malecon at this time......and so it is not a walking tour that one would enjoy right now. But once it is finished it should be magnificent. Right along the sea wall.

The Malecon of Mazatlán is world renown at least for one thing, it’s length. I believe it is about 26 kilometers (14 miles) long. It extends from Valentino’s at the North end and continues South, to the statues referred to by the natives, as “Los...More

The most beautiful views from this boardwalk that I loved! All along the boardwalk are hotels, restaurants, and shops.

At the time of this entry, the Malecon was under construction but it is supposed to be finished in about a month or so. The parts that were improved are fantastic. Loved walking along the ocean taking in the sights, people and culture.

Wow the sunset of the Malecon is so beautiful. Memorable to take a pic of it as the sun is going down. The colors are so vivid. We watched it as we were having our seafood dinner at the Luvel restaurant called the Fish Market.

Mazatlan,an has one of the longest Malecon’s in Mexico, there is a lot of construction but still lots to see and a wonderful walk. Avoid some of the new cruise tourist traps along them and now the prices. Skip the shrimp bucket!

I viewed the malecón but couldn't use it as the areas in which I wanted to travel between were under massive construction. Amazing concept and will be beautiful once construction is complete

Both are good choices. Both are beaches. The Malecon is lined with restaurants and great for walking. Brujas is further from the port and more secluded with a beautiful beach. Either way, you can’t go wrong. Enjoy!

There is no fee to walk, sit or swim, but there are many restaurants and shops where you could spend money

No, you cannot walk from the cruise ships. We stopped on a tour that included the Malecon booked onboard the ship.
